This one survives... intact

I was intrigued by this movie's potential for a long time, mostly because of the poster of blindfolded people running through the woods as a part of some sort of game. Somehow, it's run through theaters here was short and I missed it. I finally caught it on dvd, and it was certainly worth the rental. It appears that the movie was filmed mostly in Spain. The overall visual tone of the movie is dark, and lacking in extras not included directly in the plot. These things set the mood well and mirror the underground culture central to the film's story. I was quite satisfied with the unique story and the relatively good writing. It played well, and the story and secrets unfolded at a nice pace without too much predicability (though there was some). Overall I really enjoyed this film and it was very nice to see an original plot.
